Technical resources

Supporting your preparation

The technical resources are provided to support your firm’s preparation for the new digital services. 

Please share a link to this page with the relevant people in your firm and with any external vendors and service providers.

Technical resources will include the EDI schedule and technical specifications, the API schedule and how to access the specifications, as well as any other technical artefacts that are produced as the programme moves through the build of the London Market solutions. The EDI and API specifications will be issued over the coming months so please check back for updates.


Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Schedule

Update 31 January 2023

The JV published two of the six technical specifications marked for release in January. We are conducting final reviews of the remaining four EDI technical specifications indicated for release at the end of January 2023 to ensure that they are shared with the market in the most helpful way. This will result in a delay and the specifications will be issued end February. We will issue them sooner if possible. We will add to these over the coming months, as set out in the EDI Release Schedule (31 January 2023), so that you have one place where you can access all specifications.

All EDI technical specifications issued are final versions at the time of publication and vendors are able to use these to make any amendments required to be able to produce or consume the new EDI messages.

We are mindful that the overall programme is being run on an agile basis so there remains a slight risk that the specifications may need to alter to align with the build of the digital processing services. We would stress:

  • Change is not expected.
  • Change will only happen if the specification needs to be updated to deliver the functionality in the new digital processing services, and these will be minor.
  • Any change will be notified as soon as possible.

The above applies to standard EDI messages which are represented by all technical specifications referred to in the release schedule and published. If vendors and/or clients are using bespoke EDI messages then the impact of any change will vary depending on how the message has been altered.

Application Programming Interface (API) Schedule

The specifications are accessible to qualified* market participants subject to the requesting organization having ACORD membership and signing an ASG end-user license agreement. The qualification criteria are available on slide 2 of ‘How to access the API specifications on the ASG website’ below. Please contact us if you have any pressing queries.
